In the weekend I have bleed the system and the brake works fine like new.
Thanks for the good advice and help
:driving:

I've been following this as have to do my focus MK1 but I think the bleed nipples are rusted in solid so that will take some time first of all.
In what order did you finally bleed the brakes ?

It was the firts time in 18years that I bleeded the system en the loosening the nipples was no problem.

 

I did left front, right rear, left rear and right front

It is a coincidence that my focus is 18 years old this month and I have owned it from new.
Is there any reason to bleed it from the front as I thought the usual way is to bleed from the back to diagonal front ?
Anyway if it's good then that's all that matters.

Have you never changed the brake fluid?

Not personally but I'm sure it must have been changed at some time but can't remember. It's certainly not been a regular thing to be done. Not sure how often it should be done really.

I start from the furthest away from the master cylinder and work around to the

closest.

 

Some cars will vary if they have a left rear/right front split rather than a front/rear split.

 

Out of touch if there is anything like that these days. Are they all front/rear split now?

Brake fluid used to have a boil test,but its recommended to be changed every two years now.

Someone correct me if i've got it wrong.

No, you're NOT wrong.. I've just looked in my cars warranty and service guide... Renew brake fluid every two years.
